Mascots have it rough: they’re always sweating, the costumes are heavy, and they can’t totally see what’s going on around them. In case you had doubt, the Southern Illinois Salukis mascot (that massive, royal dog of Egypt) proved these assumptions right last night when he charged a little girl looking for a high-five after their game against The Wichita State Shockers. Luckily kids are made for this, so it’s fine.
And even more importantly, it was caught on tape for us to laugh over. Check it out below.
